Tasty Tweetup

The Triangle Foodie Tweetup on Sunday sold out almost as fast as a tweet circulates the Web – five hours. Six Plates in Durham, N.C. served creative noshes that fueled good conversation. The blinis with smoked salmon were one of my favorites. And I wish I’d gotten the name of the dry, crisp sparkling cider they served. It was something French.

Andrea Weigl, food writer for The News & Observer in Raleigh, N.C., started the tweetups for those who follow her on Twitter. I’ve gotten into it, too, and it’s fun to meet people that you otherwise would only know through the electronic ether of the Internet. Andrea and I will tweet when the next one comes up.

Liliana Valle of Durham offered samples of small filled shortbread cookies she calls Alfies. She said she adpated them from alfajors, traditional cookies in her native Latin America.  About the size of small buttons, they come in pecan, chocolate chunk, chocolate dulce de leche and triple chocolate. If you like a not-too-sweet cookie, they’re for you. Find out more at the web site here or look for them at A Southern Season in Chapel Hill.
